If nothing else, it seems the department have a fetish for sending many emails about the one topic.

But that aside, in normal circumstances I would have said it would have been reasonable to expect to hear from them again within four+ months after your medical was submitted and poor performance of the department to not have received any notification.

Recent times, with economic turmoil abounding will however not have helped and the government recently announced that immigration was one area that would need to be looked at! - and as soon as something like that is said or a review announced, I can imagine the brakes will go on for a lot of processing.

I could only suggest that you send an email, there being links if you click on "contact" on top right of most immi pages.

Good luck.

Wow, I can't believe you've had to wait that long!

Has your employer had the business sponsorship and nomination approved?? My employer was approved on Friday and I guessed it would almost be an instant approval for my individual application. Hope I don't have to wait another 5 months!

Probably worth ringing them, that seems to work most of the time, or even better, go in to the office and see them.

Good Luck
